Sending the Compassion of Dafa To China Through the Internet
(Clearwisdom.net) Studying Fa, clarifying the truth, and sending forth righteous thoughts are the three tasks of Dafa practitioners during the Fa rectification period. We are no longer at a time of personal cultivation; we are carrying out the divine task of rectifying the cosmos.
Through the Internet, the compassion of Dafa is being transmitted into China. When I start my computer, my righteous thoughts are boundless. I tranquilly send forth righteous thoughts to clear the bad elements in my thoughts, to eliminate all the evils behind all evil people, hoping they will awaken as soon as possible. I cherish every life that may have a predestined relationship with me. I entered a chat room in Teacher's hometown, Changchun. Pretty soon, many came to talk with me and we became friends.
Here, Dafa practitioners are cultivating in the battle between positive and negative factors. Sometimes, ten people may come to chat with me at the same time. During this time, my righteous thoughts would become strong. With great speed, I pasted my prepared experience articles and the overseas news about Dafa. After three rounds of discussion, they would begin positioning themselves: some say that they are not interested, some ask me to continue, some might curse, some say they share the same feelings with me, some want to learn [Falun Gong], some still have doubts, etc. I then systematically reply to each one of them with a pure mind. Sometimes, my ordinary person's mindset may appear, but through Fa study and the exercises, my thoughts would be cleared again.1. Abandon Human Notions and Break Through Oneself
My computer knowledge is quite limited, but by overcoming my attachment of fear, exchanging experiences with fellow practitioners, and using my righteous thoughts, I could face the machine with a god's mindset. Teacher said that all things were living beings that had eyes. They are watching every tiny idea or thought of Dafa practitioners. "They know Dafa disciples' every single action and every single thought. Everything that Dafa disciples do is clearly displayed before the eyes of higher beings. So be sure to do well and win their admiration." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston") Teacher says in "Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.", "Let me tell you, all those who remain and that can persecute Dafa and Dafa disciples are due to our students themselves." When I come back from work everyday and turn on my computer, I tell myself that I should put down the mindset of an ordinary person, and to look at all lives unselfishly.
My daily schedule is really busy, going to work, doing chores, delivering newspapers, studying Fa, practicing the exercises, sending forth righteous thoughts, posting articles onto forums, etc. I get up at 4:30 am to be prepared for the sending forth righteous thoughts at 6 am, yet I am full of energy, and I know it is Teacher who renews me.
2. Put Down Fame, Benefit, Human Sentimentality and Eliminate the Last Attachment
Once I met a person who had been hoping to learn Dafa but said that it was hard to find a Dafa practitioner since the persecution started. He said: "I swear that I will do my best." Some Dafa practitioners who had slacked off in their cultivation started to be diligent again. I took the chat rooms as a window of the Minghui website and was happy to see their progress. When I ran into Dafa practitioners who were forced to leave home to avoid being illegally arrested, my sentiment would appear. However, I know that my meeting those practitioners is a part of Teacher's arrangement. While reminding them to be diligent, I also let go of my attachment to human sentiment, as anything that is not pure should be eliminated.
3. "Validate the Fa with Rationality, Clarify the Truth with Wisdom, Spread the Fa and Save People with Mercy" (Essentials for Further Advancement II "Rationality")
How to prepare the content of chatting with greater compassion, how to get rid of the fear, how to clarify the truth in greater depth and detail while reaching more people, how to choose articles that represent the truth of Dafa to be posted to forums , how to make good use of the changing net technology and resources, and how to better utilize limited time to do more work, etc., all require us to validate Dafa with more rationality, wisdom, and compassion. With all this work, even harder is that we should still be tranquil and free of thoughts when doing the meditation. These are all tests to perfect Dafa practitioners for consummation.
4. Eliminating the Evils with Righteous Thoughts and Looking Within Ourselves
"When a person himself doesn't have righteous thoughts, all the bad things in the cosmos, or in the Three Realms, will flow around continually in the human body, even though the person doesn't realize it. That's how people are manipulated; in other words, they manipulate people when these particles are able to connect with each other." ("Fa-Lecture at the Conference in Florida, U.S.A.") The evil old forces used the most vicious methods to persecute Dafa practitioners. On the Internet, some people I faced were controlled by evil thoughts. "Since the old evil forces insist on giving us a chance to eliminate them, make good use of it. History has never seen this before; it's hard to come by." (Guiding the Voyage "Teaching the Fa at the Washington, D.C. International Fa Conference")
In chat rooms, I have met the police, Internet police, "610" Office personnel, spies, former practitioners who deviated from Dafa, and other people who are controlled by evil concepts. In this messy environment, at the beginning, I might ignore those unreasonable people or even have bitterness towards them. Then I remembered Teacher's guidance, which tells us not to be like them and that we cannot take them as enemies. Gradually, I was able use my kindness to override my negative feelings towards those with evil intentions. Looking back, I realize that none of these were accidental. Teacher wants us to remove all the hidden attachments.
5. Enlarge Our Mind Capacity and Be Compassionate to All Sentient Beings
For those who showed disrespect to Dafa, I would pick up my microphone to ask for a direct dialogue. I would say: "If I was wrong, please tell me. But please be respectful to others as well as to yourself. Nevertheless, you should respect Dafa with the principles of Truth, Compassion, and Tolerance." At the same time, I would also look at my own behavior. I think that the power of kindness alone can touch people's heart. Since many people only look at our behavior, poor behavior on our part may hinder them from attaining Dafa. Doing things this way, I enlightened to an even deeper understanding of "Truth, Compassion, Tolerance."
6. Assimilate to Dafa
Dafa is omnipotent. "The Fa can break all attachments, the Fa can destroy all evil, the Fa can shatter all lies, and the Fa can strengthen righteous thoughts." (Essentials for Further Advancement II "Drive Out Interference") "But sometimes, because we don't keep up our Fa-study, we handle like an ordinary person some of the things we do to spread the Fa and save sentient beings. This makes a lot of the sacred things we do not so sacred, it prevents us from doing them well, and it also causes people in society not to understand us sometimes. So it not only prevents you from improving, but also causes Dafa some losses." ("Teaching the Fa at the 2002 Fa Conference in Boston"), So in our Fa-rectification cultivation, we should treat ourselves as Dafa practitioners at all times and radiate the purest light in every environment. Only then can we qualify for the title of Fa-rectification Dafa disciples.
